Preventive dentistry is important because the emphasis is on oral health and keeping your natural teeth healthy and in good condition. However, as much as we would like to see our patients keep all their teeth throughout their lives, the fact remains that most people will lose a certain percentage of their teeth by the time they reach middle age. There are several reasons a person may lose a tooth or many teeth. When it happens, replacing the missing tooth becomes important, and that is where restorative dentistry comes in.
Restorative dentistry helps you in many ways. It provides a way back to your best oral health. It enhances your appearance and can help with your overall health. Restorative dentistry provides you with functional teeth so you can enjoy healthy, nutritious foods that you otherwise may not be able to chew properly.
Restorative dentistry procedures include:
You deserve to have a full and healthy smile. Restorative dentistry can help you achieve that by replacing those teeth that are missing.

The importance of a healthy mouth cannot be stressed enough. Research shows that individuals with no teeth are at a higher risk of chronic kidney disease. When you lose the ability to chew your food properly or eat healthy foods like raw vegetables, lean meats, fish and poultry, your body suffers. It does not get the nutrition needed to function optimally. This can affect everything, including cognitive ability. Your body needs certain nutrients in order to function at its best.
Restoring missing teeth not only enhances the way you look, but it also provides the means for you to eat healthier foods. Having the ability to chew properly also means you are able to digest your food better. At Mint Dental, we can replace your missing teeth and help you return to oral health. This will also have a positive impact on your general health and well-being. You will enjoy having a beautiful smile again.
